Although there are plenty of people in our own community who are in need of care and services, no one can argue that in third-world countries, governments do not provide the “Safety Net” for health care needs, we have in the United States. For this reason, we give our time, our skills, and our gifts where and when we can.
Following are a few International Service Projects in which Paladin participates.

Much thanks to Gracila’s Cheese Wheelchair Team of Rotarians Michael Hasty and the Rotarians of The Grand Prairie Rotary Club, Texas.
